Filtration Maintenance for Water Treatment Systems

Updated: Dec 1, 2021

Air filtration is at the top of everyone’s mind, so water filtration may not seem as urgent - until there’s a problem.

Let’s take a look at some before and after photos of a dirty strainer vs a clean strainer. We’ll talk about what went awry afterwards.

A new chilled loop system was installed in a local high school. The chilled loop still had a lot of iron and mud in the pipes caused by lack of treatment at start up. The fine mesh strainer on the new Clima-Cool chiller kept clogging, which caused the chiller to shut down.

Boland technician Joe Lane, installed a brand new Shelco filtration system on the chilled loop. After changing filters regularly for a month, the strainer cleared up significantly. The chiller began to operate as normal.

Hiring the right water treatment company is about more than costs, it’s about a company who truly understands the role of water within an HVAC system. A partner who knows the different types of systems, the right chemicals to use, provides you with timely maintenance, empowers you with remote technology and trending reports/dashboards, and helps you achieve your business goals through smart building decisions is the ideal partner.
